    Collector Selling Every SNES Game for $25,000

    Collector selling every SNES game for $25,000
    December 10, 2012 10:33AM PST

    By Eddie Makuch, News Editor

    eBay listing includes 721 SNES titles released in US, Mexico, and Canada; seller willing to take best offer, but has declined all thus far.
    Auction site eBay is home to numerous SNES collections, but one is more comprehensive than the rest. eBay user "kaisetsuna" is unloading a collection that includes all 721 SNES titles released in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The asking price is $24,999 or best offer.


    Forty-nine offers have been made thus far, including 13 today alone. All have been rejected.

    The collection--which weighs in at 400 pounds--includes boxes for each game, as well as 85 percent of all manuals. Conditions range from near mint to fair, with each game having been "professionally" cleaned and tested.

    Writing on Reddit, the seller said it would be preferable to complete a potential sale outside of eBay so as to avoid the auction site's fees.

    Now if only I had $25,000 laying around...

    If you break it down you are looking at $34 per game.

    Exactly. For a mint SNES game that's a steal! There are certain games on EBay (if mint) that go for well over $100 alone.

    I think he will get what he is seeking. I am sure there are not many FULL SNES collections floating around, and at $34 a game this is a great deal.

    Lol yeah but he probably has the collection 2 fold. Love his series though, something about sitting in a basement with every game around you makes me warm inside lol!

    What a collection though...impressive.

    Now it's a lie, it's not every game. Only the ones in the Western world

    Not one for Japan or Europe or am I missing anything

    Nice deal though

    It never claims for JPN and EUR. It specifically says the countries in the NA region.

    This is a bit off-topic but what was everyone's favorite SNES game?

    Earthbound and the Donkey Kong Country Trilogy are my top SNES games, sadly my entire pre-PS1 catalogue of games got ruined due to water damage. :/

    Legend of Zelda A Link to the past
    SMW 2 yoshi Island
    Donkey Kong Country

    Honestly, I'd have to go with Super Mario World. It was so easy to pick up and play.

    I'm gonna buy this game collection and everyone on PSU will GET A FREE COPY!

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.
